Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Our first selection this week is from the first set of a terrific show on 11/14/73 in San Diego, CA, featuring Big Railroad Blues ; Jack Straw ; Sugaree ; Mexicali Blues ; Here Comes Sunshine ; Black Throated Wind ; Cumberland Blues; Row Jimmy ; The Race Is On ; Brown Eyed Women ; Beat It On Down The Line, including a rare first set opener of Big Railroad Blues. This show's second set would be centered around The Other One, during which the band went in and out of The Other One throughout the set. Great stuff.

Next is the first set from the excellent show in Buffalo, NY on 11/9/79, featuring Alabama Getaway > The Promised Land ; They Love Each Other ; Cassidy ; Loser ; Lazy Lightnin' > Supplication ; Althea ; Easy To Love You ; Jack Straw.

Lastly this week is the end of the show from 11/2/85 in Richmond, VA, featuring Morning Dew>Throwing Stones>Lovelight, Baby Blue. Although it didn't feature quite the set list of the previous night in Richmond, its playing quality was every bit as good.

Be sure to stop by next week for more tunes from the vault.

Crispy SBD. Nice upgrade from the KPFA marathon circa 1992 and this recording has not been stepped on by Charlie Miller.

This is so crisp and clean. I have an audience copy of this show, which I love, but this vault clip is phenomenal. I love hearing Brent on the keys during Alabama. David keep the tunes flowing. Thanks!

11 shows in 15 days. I did this tour with an old friend who left this plane of existence about 10 years ago. "The fat man rocks" Hey now Steve K.

First time I saw the Dew. Middle floor, about 40 feet from the stage. When Jerry hit that first walkup from A to C, I was completely transported, transfixed, and transmogrified. The girl I was with kept yelling into my ear, "What song is this?", but I was rendered speechless.

Finally, someone in front of us turned around and yelled, " IT'S MORNING DEW!!! NOW, DIG IT!"

Yes, it was-and we did.

1979 piece is also part of Road Trips

Cool first set and Brent's first Fall Tour. I saw an interview/story about GD from a local news station, I think it was dated 11-6-79 from Philly or Detroit. The 2nd set of 11-9-79 has an awesome Gloria jam along with Dancin' > Franklins Tower
